Name Pos Team Age Yrs
Exp.
Pos. Rank
Joique Bell RB DET 29 4 RB - #34
FANTASY PROFILE / STATS & MORE

Bell's strong play earned him substantial playing time and forced a two-back system in Detroit. Expect to see more carries (166 last year) and perhaps see the same number of receptions (53). He will split time with Reggie Bush. If Bush we... Read More
Reggie Bush RB SF 30 8 RB - #36
FANTASY PROFILE / STATS & MORE

Reggie Bush is coming off a 1,000-plus rushing yard, 500-plus receiving yard season. This is what we've come to expect from him. Bush is a very good fantasy back, but much more valuable in PPR leagues. It is looking like the Lions will be ... Read More
Arian Foster RB HOU 29 5 RB - #39
FANTASY PROFILE / STATS & MORE

REMEMBER ME?: From 2010 to 2012 Arian Foster was arguably the best fantasy running back. He is a strong runner, great pass catcher and knows how to find the end zone. In 2013, Foster was solid when he played, but he also d... Read More
Rashad Jennings RB NYG 30 5 RB - #40
FANTASY PROFILE / STATS & MORE

After three seasons in Jacksonville as MJD's handcuff, Jennings signed with the Raiders and posted career highs with 733 rushing yards (4.5 YPC) and six TDs on the ground. He also added 36 receptions for 292 yards. The 29-year-old signed a... Read More
Marshawn Lynch RB SEA 29 7 RB - #6
FANTASY PROFILE / STATS & MORE

KINDA BEASTMODE: Lynch is a volume runner who became more involved in the passing game last year. Excluding the postseason, he ran the ball 901 times over the last three years. Not many backs are asked to carry that kind o... Read More
Doug Martin RB TB 26 2 RB - #26
FANTASY PROFILE / STATS & MORE

SOMETHING TO PROVE: Martin was one of last season's sexy picks to be a Top 5 fantasy back. A torn labrum ended his season after five games and the team scrambled to fill the void all season long. Ultimately, the team vi... Read More
Ryan Mathews RB PHI 27 4 RB - #44
FANTASY PROFILE / STATS & MORE

Ryan Mathews is one of many safe picks to choose from San Diego's offense. After failing to meet the expectations of fantasy owners early in his career, mostly due to injury woes and periods of non-productivity, the former Fresno State bac... Read More
Alfred Morris RB WAS 26 2 RB - #15
FANTASY PROFILE / STATS & MORE

Alfred Morris has quietly been one of the most consistent backs since being drafted in the sixth round out of Florida Atlantic by the Redskins in the 2012 draft. He only trails Adrian Peterson in rushing yards from scrimmage over the las... Read More
C.J. Spiller RB NO 28 4 RB - #14
FANTASY PROFILE / STATS & MORE

YOU GOTTA BELIEVE: It is understandable if a large number of fantasy owners skip over this section of the article. Spiller was a first-round pick for many of them last year. He was going to be the focal point of the Bills'... Read More
Ben Tate RB --- 27 4 Unranked
FANTASY PROFILE / STATS & MORE

Tate signed a two-year, $6.2 million contract to be the lead back for the Browns. In 2013, Cleveland's ground game was anemic. Their 86 rushing yards per game ranked sixth-worst. The 25-year-old Auburn alum spent the first three years of h... Read More
Pierre Thomas RB --- 30 7 Unranked
FANTASY PROFILE / STATS & MORE

Pierre Thomas is one of the most underrated and underappreciated fantasy players. It is amazing how his stock drops on draft day in PPR leagues. He posted 77 receptions and had a combined 1,062 yards in 2013. His efforts earned him an over... Read More
Shane Vereen RB NYG 26 3 RB - #33
FANTASY PROFILE / STATS & MORE

IT'S REALLY HAPPENING: Look for Shane Vereen to be the leader in the Patriots' backfield this season. Despite only playing in eight games last season, he played almost as many snaps as Stevan Ridley. Vereen's value jumps ... Read More
